On this list, you will find the top 100 schools that give out merit scholarships as educational financial aid to their students.  In the right hand column, you will see the percentage of students who receive non-need based aid at that particular college.  Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan comes in first, since they give 100 percent of merit aid.  Well-done, Finlandia.

Some prestigious colleges that stand out on the list are Cooper Union, University of Colorado, Seton Hall University, University of Florida, Tulane University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Southern Methodist University, Baylor University and University of Rochester.  So definitely check out these colleges.

Many thanks to U.S. News & World Report for providing such a great list.
